Hi becar1989! Welcome to the forum.

Here are the guidelines that I try to stick to (others will use different numbers, but these are what I stick to)

MTT: no tourney more than 1/100th of my bankroll.
For you currently, that would put you in the 25 cent to 50 cent range

cash tables: nothing where the max buy-in is over 1/25th of my bankroll
For your bankroll currently, I'd play tables where I could buy-in for $2. I always try to buy-into a table for the max amount too.

S&G: no tourney more than 1/50th of my bankroll
For your bankroll currently, $1 tourneys.

I do this to account for any variance runs that will eventually happen to me. The other thing you want to do is that if you're doing well at a given type of tourney or level of a cash table, keep with them as you build your bankroll, but be ready to go to a lower amount if your bankroll starts to go down, due to a variance swing.

Also, here is a link that was put together for new members to help explain the various items you can take advantage of on the site.

Good luck at the tables

John

My noobish advice is to stay on limit holdem(if we are talking about fixed limit(didn't try pot limit) ),while I was on fixed limit I always had a profit,slowly but surely and there is too much loose players. Since I switched to NL2 I firstly gone into minus and keep going deeper and deeper and now I'm on around -40$ since I am on NL...If you are doing good on FL don't get greedy,just stay where you are!...Playing TAG on FL
Good luck!
